I was fortunate have the chance to report and write this week's this week's Village Voice cover story on Saturday Night Live as it enters its 32nd season in transition. It was a great assignment and I had pretty sweet access, including interviews with most of the cast members plus Lorne Michaels, attending two live shows, and wandering around at a rehearsal checking things out. Most of that is in the piece (plus this companion web-only piece which was basically an excuse to link to funny sketches) but, just as SNL must axe sketches on the road from dress to air, so too did some great little nuggets get left behind during the editing process. I bring you a few of those today, randomly assorted and with varying degrees of comedy wonkitude. Enjoy!
More wonkery for the committed comedy geek after the jump.
p.s. What's that you say? More cowbell? Well then, here.
